Trail Outlaws 5K Series

A Series Of Trails

Trail Outlaws 5K Trail Series has three new locations added for 2024...

Trail Outlaws's 5K Trail Series started with the Branches & Bays event in 2023 followed by the Penshaw 5K, both of which received outstanding feedback. It is because of this that in 2024 the events company have also added Durham 5K, Washington 5K and RAF Spadeadam 5K to the series. 

The Trail Outlaws Urban Trail Series and Ulimate Trail Series Challenge events are aimed at giving runners of all abilities the chance to have fun or race on local trails. In addition to the 5K races there are other distances to choose from including 10K and half marathon.

First up is the Washington Trail 5K on 28 April, a popular and inclusive trail 5K - whether you are starting out on the trails for the first time, or wanting to race for a PB this event is for you. The race winds its way around James Steel Park and picks its way over some beautiful woodland trails along the banks of the River Wear. Keep your eyes peeled for the birds from the Washington Wildfowl Wetland Centre along the way and the resident otter family around Cox Green.

RAF Spadeadam 5K is up next on 5 May. Winding its way around and through Spadeadam Forest with stunning views over to the Lake District and Sycamore Gap on Hadrians Wall.

The Durham Trail 5K on 12 May offers runners a fabulous opportunity to run some beautiful trails in Durham City and the areas surrounding the city while the Branches and Bays 5K on 11 August takes runners through a Site of Special Scientific Interest. Starting in the local village of Hawthorn, the route takes runners through the Durham Wildlife Trust and National Trust managed woodland of Hawthorn Dene.

Penshaw 5K on 6 October is set on the fantastic trails surrounding Penshaw Monument and the River Wear. This race has everything you would want in a trail race with great views throughout. It's an ideal location for the whole family as Herrington Country Park has a children's play area, woodland walks and fun trail walks.
